Since its inception in 1991 the Caux Scholars Program (CSP) has graduated close to 400 students from more than 100 countries. The program has an active alumni network active in all areas of life - academics, politics, international organizations, grassroots initiatives.
The Caux Scholars Program teaches students to analyze a conflict, to understand the factors that create and sustain conflicts, and provide practical understanding of approaches to resolving conflicts - conflict prevention, negotiation and transitional justice.
Twenty students from around the world are selected for this four-week course held in Caux, Switzerland, during the Initiatives of Change global summer conferences. The program includes approximately 40 hours of academic classes, seven hours per week of “Service for Leadership” practical work, a field trip to Geneva and participation in the Caux conferences.
While CSP is not affiliated with a university and does not offer credit, it is often possible for participants to secure credit through their own institution, in consultation with their professor and pursuant to their requirements. CSP is willing to assist in this.

Our New Approach: Crowdfunding
In addition to raising the $4,400 for the Alumni Scholarship, CSP has decided to take a new approach to fundraising: crowdfunding! With this campaign we hope the scholars, their families, friends and well wishers will be able to raise an additional $20,000 for the 2013 scholarships needed. Check out this fundraising campaign on Indiegogo and become part of the crowd!
The Caux Scholars Program offers a multi-disciplinary approach to conflict transformation, transitional justice, and principled leadership.
